NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — The US Open Tennis Championship appears on a wish list of terror targets in an al Qaeda magazine, an NYPD official said Wednesday.

In a briefing for New York City’s private security community, Rebecca Weiner, the NYPD’s director of intelligence analysis, warned that Inspire magazine is instructing would-be terrorists on how to make bombs and where to set them off, WCBS 880′s Marla Diamond reported.  

The magazine lists targets in Washington, D.C.; Virginia; and New York — including the US Open, which begins Aug. 25 in Flushing Meadows, Queens.

Weiner stressed that police are not aware of any specific threats against the tournament.

“We will ensure that the suggestions in this magazine remain hypothetical,” she said. “Nonetheless, we would be remiss not to take note of it as this event comes up.”

NYPD Commissioner Bill Bratton said the biggest concern is lone wolves who operate under law enforcement’s radar.

“Two thousand years ago, the expression was ‘all roads lead to Rome,’” Bratton said. “Well, in 2014, as it relates to this subject matter, terrorism, unfortunately all roads lead to New York City.”

  1. False Flag anyone? Prepare for the worst, expect the worst. They want everyone to live in fear and bow to the Militarized Police State. The US Open, dammit, why couldn’t ALCIADEA choose a Nascar Event or WWF WrestleMania. They would have many more brain dead Goobers to easily fool into believing anything!

  2. Ya’ mean Murder Inc’s CEO Dick Cheney’s ‘Wish List’?

    I TRULY thought the False Flag would happen on July 4th. What better date to commit sacrilege against ‘the free-est nation on earth’?

    But I don’t know about the US Open. Too many celebrities, other-sports stars, major MSM-shills, etc., enjoy tennis.

    They need those people to help sell their lies and the coming invasion and war – at whomever they need to ‘point the finger(s??)’ at.

    1. They want the rich and famous, along with the millionaire athletes to know who’s their Daddy. Everyone must bow to them. Next headline, “3 congressmen who call for release of the 911 files die from mysterious plane crash in a remote part of the ocean where it will be impossible to confirm, yet, it happened, no doubt about it, that’s the story and we’re sticking to it, until we change it to confuse everyone and then ohhhhhhhhhhhh, look at the poor children with those cute facial tattoos!

  3. As I thought more about this, a second thought occurred;

    ‘Anonymous’ needs to hack into the messaging and emails of prominent government officials. I’ll bet dollars to donuts (even though a donut IS now a dollar) that there will be a ‘do not attend’ communication, as many of them got ‘do not fly Sept 11’ notices.

    If that is achievable, we will possibly be able to stop these maniacs, as I believe there is a great possibility that pre-exposure and outing of many of their plans has stalled, or even stopped, many of their acts from occurring.
